An informed public plays a critical role in keeping our communities safe. September 25 is “If You See Something, Say Something®” Awareness Day, also known as #SeeSayDay.
If You See Something Say Something
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s "If You See Something, Say Something®” campaign is committed to educating the American public about how to recognize and report the signs of suspicious activity. We believe everyone has a role to play in keeping our communities safe and secure. To effectively meet that mission, the Campaign must be accessible to all of the communities that we serve.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is working closely with state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement agencies to help ensure the safety and security of employees, drivers, crew, and fans during the Indianapolis 500 (Indy 500).
Partners have access to campaign outreach materials that DHS has developed for state, local, tribal, territorial, and private sector entities and organizations. The campaign offers this package of pre-developed translated materials to provide meaningful access for individuals with limited English proficiency.
Listen to thought leaders share their perspectives on the evolution of suspicious activity reporting, the importance of partnerships, and the need to maintain vigilance.

Participation in the “Are You Ready to SeeSay?” training program is voluntary and not required by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Individual Pre-Assessment and Post-Assessment responses will be compared for the purpose of measuring the effectiveness of the training. All data collected will be reviewed and may be provided in aggregate to partner organizations to inform them of their staff’s understanding of recognizing and reporting suspicious activity.
Continue your learning by reviewing the key concepts from the training and discussing how they apply to your organization and team.
Whether you are on your way to work, walking in your neighborhood, or out and about in your community, remember: We all play a role in keeping our communities safe. Remember to stay vigilant and say something when you see signs of suspicious activity.
Partners promote the “If You See Something, Say Something®” campaign as a part of their greater safety and security strategy via both “back of the house” promotion for employees (e.g. in breakrooms, restrooms, employee common areas), as well as at in public-facing areas. Partnership includes access to awareness signage, public service announcements, educational materials, and a social media toolkit with evergreen content and images. We invite partners to promote the campaign year-round.
